Thanks for the nice tribute to Big Sid, Marc--he was a Hoosier, came from Evansville, IN. He also gets a mention in Elmore Leonard's crime novel GET SHORTY. Anybody who happens across the Chronological Classics BIG SID CATLETT 1944-46 should snap it up... it gathers most (all?) of Sid's leader dates, with a cast that includes Ben Webster, Illinois Jacquet, Charlie Shavers, Art Tatum, and some of the other 52nd St. regulars from the time.
